    Tried to PM but your box is full. I was trying to point out a fine dog in the breeding. Morgan is QAA and qualified for the national AM a couple of years back. Something you won't see in the pedigree. I don't think Bill ran him due to expenses. My pup out of Morgan is a good marker, learns fast, and is a little sensitive to correction, but that could come from his mom. http://www.blindfaithretrievers.com/ If you would like to check out Morgan.

    Actually, there were three things. First, I was impressed with the performance pedigree which included familiar dogs. Secondly, the "parents" are both amateur trained and handled. And lastly, I put a lot of stock in listening.

    When it comes right down to finally reaching a decision (on anything) .......it must feel right followed by a "rush" of relief. Doing things that way makes it simple to own the consequences. Don't want to come across as being "preachy", but that's just what I'm use to doing.

    edit: Thanks Fishin, I did look at "Morgan" as a solid plus in the pedigree.

    Thanks for the reply, I was curious to what you as an experienced trainer looked for when selecting a puppy for yourself.

    Jim:
    Glad to hear that you are getting a new pup. It looks like a very nice breeding and I am sure you will do a great job with the new pup. The hardest part for you will probably be waiting for the pup to arrive. Post some pictures when the pup arrives.

    I have a 6 mo old black Male pup who's sire is Willie out of a very nice QAA bitch. LOVE him to death and smart as can be. Loves to retrieve really looking forward to training this guy.
    I had that same sense of relief when I picked this litter after a ton of research.

    Best of luck with your Stevie!!
